When Conscience Charges Me with GuiltDon Fortner


(Tune: When I Survey #118 — LM)


1.        When conscience charges me with guilt

And Moses would my soul condemn,

With Satan’s accusations felt,

I look to Christ to answer them.


2.        When in my room and place He stood,

Made sin — (O mystery of God!)

He ransomed me with His own blood,

And satisfied the holy God.


3.        Now justice smiles, with mercy sweet,

And tells me I am reconciled.

Yes, truth and mercy run to meet

And kiss this sinful, mourning child!


4.        I look to Christ upon His throne,

The mercy-seat, the throne of grace,

There interceding for His own.

My Advocate! He is my peace!
